The volume emphasizes families and children whose primary recourse to services has been through publicly funded child welfare agencies. The book considers historical areas of service--foster care and adoptions, in-home family centered services, child-protective services, and residential services--where social work has an important role. Authors also address how child welfare programs interface with the many fields of practice in which child and family services are provided or that involve substantial numbers of social work programs, such as services to adolescent parents, child mental health, education, and juvenile justice agencies. This new edition will continue to serve as a fundamental introduction for new practitioners, as well as summary of recent developments for experienced policymakers. administrators and practitioners.
